Uses
Diprosone OV Ointment (Betamethasone Dipropionate) is a topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroid, which works on the skin by decreasing inflammation and relieving itchiness. In addition to exhibiting glucocorticoid action, it has also been shown to have a small amount of mineralocorticoid activity.

Although many doctors have stated that its exact mechanism of action has not yet been fully ascertained, it is a widely established belief among experts that its efficacy in the treatment of topical dermatoses is related to its vasoconstrictive action. By preventing inflammation of the blood vessels and suppressing the immune response, it can help to reduce local itching, flaking and swelling of the skin. Indications include dermatitis, eczema and psoriasis.

Dosage and Administration
Diprosone OV Ointment (Betamethasone Dipropionate) is provided in a 30mg tube. Each gram contains 0.5mg of the active ingredient. A thin layer of ointment is all that is needed, and patients are advised against applying too much ointment. Your doctor will evaluate your individual needs and the severity of the condition and how your body reacts to the ointment. Once the symptoms have cleared up, treatment is generally ceased. There is a possibility that you will be advised by your doctor to use it 1 to 2 times each day. The duration of treatment depends on how long it takes for the condition to heal.

Side effects
Treatment of inflammatory skin conditions with Diprosone OV Ointment (Betamethasone Dipropionate) may result in the occurrence of side effects, including:

  • Acne
  • Striae
  • Telangiectasia
  • Mild local irritant reactions
  • Alterations in the pigmentation of the skin

Keep a close eye on your skin for signs of a reaction and make sure that you promptly tell your doctor of any side effects which occur. The appearance of a serious skin reaction will require immediate medical treatment. Also, if the ointment is absorbed into the blood, you may experience blurry eyesight, body weight increases, insomnia and other reactions. This will require immediate medical care.

Precautions
Precutaneous absorption is more likely if it is used in combination with an occlusive dressing or if too much ointment is applied. Patients should not bandage the treated area unless their doctor orders them to do so.

This ointment is only to be used externally on skin affected by inflammatory dermatoses. In case of accidental oral administration, go to the hospital immediately.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Diprosone OV Ointment (Betamethasone Dipropionate) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
